Cat Tales ~ New Trick

Whoever said an Old Dog Human can't learn a new trick or two was wrong!
And Me can prove it!
But let Me start at the beginning...


Mommy's big 'puter recently stopped computing. Mommy was bummed. So Daddy got her a new one. This one is different from the old one. It has a fancy window that let's a person use their paw hand to control the pictures shown. It also has a different sort of brain - more 'advanced' said Mommy. But Mommy has been muttering a lot under her breathe when she uses it. Mommy said it would take her some time to get used to it and Daddy has been teasing her about 'Old Dogs and New Tricks'. That's usually when Mommy throws something at Daddy and Daddy walks away laughing.

Well, that got Me thinking. Could Me possibly teach an old dog or human a new trick or two? So when Mommy was busy, Me got on the new 'puter and did some research about teaching 'new tricks'.  And then Me put into action what Me learned.
First Me squalled to go outside. Then Me jumped up on the shelf by the front door and pushed the big white button. A bell sounded inside and Mommy came to the door. Mommy was so surprised that Me was there. Mommy let me in,exclaiming what a Smart Kitty I was. Me rubbed against Mommy's leg and purred real loud.

A little while later, after Me's nap, Me squalled at the door to go out. Mommy let Me out. After Me took another nap in a nice Sun Puddle, Me jumped up on the shelf and pushed the big white button that makes the bell ring inside. Mommy came to the door once again. Mommy told Me how Cute Me is and how Smart Me is. Me rubbed against Mommy's leg.
So, after Me got a bite to eat and used the litter box, Me squalled once more to go out. Mommy muttered something about needing to hire a doorman as she walked to the door. After Me had inspected the perimeter of the yard, Me once again pushed the big white bell button. This time when Mommy opened the door, she was muttering. Mommy must've been working on the new 'puter.....


Me has managed to teach Mommy to come to the door when me wants in. Me reinforced this new training with ample leg rubs and flashing Mes cute eyes. So take heart all you Kitties out there! It is possible to train your Human, no matter the age!

And on a side note.......Me found the new 'puter quite easy to use. Me just used Mes paw, and even Mes tail, to make the 'puter compute. Me doesn't see why Mommy has a problem...

Gomez, you are the smartest cat ever!! Maybe you should ask Santa for your very own smart phone so that you could send texts to mommy when you are not at home and update the blog from the road!

Abby read that humans need to get up once and a while and not sit overly long. Abby does the door dance and sings (whines)and looks adorable. Tar just bonks the door with his paw and causes the whole house to tremor.

Congrats on your new trick :-)
